Congress party might have been crushed under BJP’s Narendra Modi juggernaut which shocked even all powerful Sonia Gandhi and her son hailed Prince Rahul Gandhi. According to analysts Congress is fighting a losing battle in the upcoming Maharashtra assembly elections despite the BJP-ShivSena split.
However a 90 plus Congress candidate is shivering all opponents. Satgonda Revgonda Patil, 94 year old with his fitness and agility is shaming everyone. He already covered entire nook and corner of his Shirol assembly constituency. Famously known as Appasaheb Patil, the owner of a sugar mill here, cutting across generations, parties and castes is respected by one and all. He with a smile says he has been in public life for more than 70 yrs. Patil born Dec 21, 1921 is not new to the nuances of electoral politics.
